Support Our Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral has been a site of pilgrimage and worship for nearly 1,000 years. As we do not receive any state aid, the sale of entrance tickets is our single biggest source of income. Even that, however, is not enough to cover the €4000 a day it costs to maintain the cathedral. All donations, sales of tickets and income from the shop will help to preserve the cathedral for future generations to enjoy. Any amount you give the cathedral will be warmly received and appreciated. 

You can make a donation to the Cathedral:

A Bid to Save Christ Church

By giving your time as a volunteer in the cathedral gift shop, or by greeting visitors at the entrance, you are helping ensure that our visitors have the best possible experience during their visit to the cathedral. For more information, see our volunteers section


The Friends of Christ Church Cathedral Dublin is one of the oldest such organisations in these islands. Founded in 1929, they evolved from needs of the cathedral community to raise funds for the upkeep of the cathedral as the Endowment Funds had in the recent years been falling financially short of the amount required of them. The support of the Friends of Christ Church Cathedral plays a vital role in ensuring the ministry of the Cathedral to the Diocese of Dublin and Glendalough. The support of the Friends also ensures that the worship of Almighty God in this ancient place is truly to the glory of God. If you would like to be part of the Friends and help to ensure that Christ Church Cathedral can continue to be a witness to the presence of God in this city of Dublin as it has been for the last 1000 years, please join the Friends.

Acolytes & Crucifers

Both acolytes and crucifers serve at cathedral services by carrying the cross or candles. If you would like more information on this, please contact Revd Garth Bunting on 00353 (0) 1 6778099 extension 201 or email
